New Brunswick to Host 2018 Meeting of Canada’s Premiers

 

EDMONTON, July 19, 2017 – Premier Brian Gallant announced today that Canada’s Premiers will hold their 2018 summer meeting in New Brunswick.

Premiers will meet in St. Andrews, NB on July 18-20, 2018 to discuss issues of mutual concern and continue their efforts to work together to strengthen the Canadian federation.

“It is an honour for me to host the 2018 summer meeting of Canada’s Premiers,” said Premier Gallant. “These meetings have shown Canadians how their governments are working to support families and ensure continued economic growth.

“This is an opportunity to welcome all Canadians to our beautiful province and one of our most scenic and historic communities.”

The Council of the Federation was created in 2003 to promote provincial-territorial cooperation and closer ties between members, foster meaningful relations between governments based on respect for the Constitution and recognition of the diversity within the federation, and show leadership on issues important to all Canadians.
